Hiab Multilift XR Power range hooklifts are available with a radio control system that was based on the standard programmable logic control (PLC) cabin controller, allowing the driver to operate the demountable not only from the normal position, inside the cabin, but also from outside. The radio feature allows the operator to be outside of the danger zone ensuring security and a safe working clearance at all times. On the back of the success of the radio control system and combined with new market demands the Mini-Radio control system was born.
"We had been receiving requests from more and more customers asking for a compact and simple radio controller and the result to this customer need is the Mini-Radio controller. The Mini-Radio controller has eight function buttons that can be freely programmed to operate hooklift movements or to functions meeting the customer's specific needs. The Mini-Radio controller is aimed at applications where limited or very specific movements or functions are needed," explains Mark Davies, Product Manager for Hiab Multilift solutions.
Hiab Multilift demountables, including hooklifts, cablelifts and skiploaders, are market leaders and renowned for their reliability, productivity and safety of operation. Now the Hiab Multilift Mini-Radio control system opens up new ways of operating a hooklift that will ultimately benefit customers in their day-to-day operations.
